Competence Survey

  • 1. Summary

    The core objective of universities is to deliver advanced knowledge and skills to their stakeholders, namely students and society. In the course of this process there is an increasing importance of listening to the voices of the stakeholders and together shaping university education.

    In the Competence Survey Study, universities who attempt to engage in Tuning* conduct a questionnaire survey by discipline, asking students, university professors, graduates and companies (employers) about the knowledge, skills and competences they expect universities to develop. Through a comparative analysis of the results by discipline, institution and different group of stakeholders in different regional areas, the aim is for each university to recognize and further develop its own strengths and characteristics, while nurturing an international perspective to improve its program structures, curriculum, and educational content.

    Please see the website below for details about Tuning.
